3/21/24 Leadership Retreat—Save the Date

Fred will be leading us, our new and retiring leaders and aspiring leaders, to inspire and encourage our thinking about who we want to become as a church as we seek our settled pastor. Through creating our stories (understanding who we are and why we are), he will help us improve our connections (remember, its connections, not perfection!), creating a more united leadership for this next very important year in the life of our church. Mark your calendar now!

While spring is springing out all around us (isn’t it glorious!), I keep hearing great little blossoms of news all around me. Search is nearing the end of creating our profile, a very important document that is like our resume. Ministers looking for a new congregation meet us through our profile. It is a minister’s first impression of us. I am hearing that the Nominating committee is hearing lots of “Yes, I will!” That is music to my ears—a renewed level of engagement that bodes well for our year ahead. And Stewardship has lined up their excellent program to begin in late April. This is a time to consider how we engage with our money. And Personnel is looking at making a change to our staff. A Woman’s Retreat is in our near future. And most importantly, Holy Week is almost here, beginning with this Palm Sunday, Good Friday service, and a big Halelujah on Easter Sunday, complete with Easter Egg hunt.

Enjoy this lovely Spring and all that is blooming around us!
